I am fine with adding textShadow.  My concern was how we handle textOutline. So, remaining silent in SE and just dealing with them both when the time comes is a good course, I think.

I’m OK with that plan. I do think that we should add the textShadow property as well in v.next however, as its not a 1-1 match with textOutline .

Concur to be silent for now.

I'd suggest we not do anything in SE, and that in the mapping we define in .next, we simply map to text-shadow in the HTML/CSS mapping rules. I think the absence of literal support for 'text-outline' in browsers doesn't affect this usage.

Do you mean only in the context of a mapping to HTML, not in general?

Thanks,
